A Personal Story of Media Communication During the Fukushima Crisis

Please join us in welcoming Margaret Harding who will speak at the next American Nuclear Society Connecticut Section Dinner Meeting on Wednesday, April 3rd 2013.  This talk will present how and why Margaret Harding became one of the key ANS spokespersons during the Fukushima crisis.  She will discuss how the media functions in a crisis, how the industry’s responses helped (and hurt) public perceptions.  Finally, she will cover how the event is impacting the industry – some myths and some truths.
